Moda Block Heads 3 Quilt Along- Block 55 & 56

Uneven 9 Patch Quilt Block a tutorial featured as part of the Block Heads quilting series by top US quilting blogger, Lisa Bongean


 Block 55 -Wine Not?-is from Moda fabric designer Jen Kingwell.  This is a fun block but I messed it up and cut my last squares the wrong size!!  Oh well, it’s a variation! 

I wish I could say I had too much wine!LIsa Bongean

Then… here is the last Block 56– from designer Joanna Figeroa. I love star blocks so of course this was a great block all those little pieces in 4″…Click Here for block 56

I am sorry these are a little late…I had to layout all my blocks to see what my layout needed.  I know some of you are very much interested in it and I promise to get this finished and produce my layout option.  Lisa Bongean MBH3 layoutI love how it’s turning out…except I am missing one block??? (top row) and had to make an extra one for the center…LB MBH3

I just “had” to fussy cut that little anchor in the middle…I hope you loved Moda Block Head 3!   Super fun!!!!! I can’t wait to reveal my finish, but hopefully this will satisfy your need to know that I am really working on it…and…someone as obsessive as myself cannot get this far and just leave it! I am a finisher! 

…if you need to order fabric for finishing I have used the following fabrics…so far…

HERE IS THE LIGHT FABRIC I USED…this is a beautiful little basic…order a bunch!


 and if you want to order the dark greys they can be PRE-ORDERED HERE…for an April delivery…. I think you need a FQ Bundle!!!! A prize for getting all your blocks done this far!!

Oh.. I  almost forgot…here is my ” quick- make a block, so I am done” block…

I’ll be back soon with the grand finish!

all for now….Lisa

  1. Your quilt is beautiful! I don’t do social media but I want to thank you and Moda so much for this QAL. It was such a bright spot during this strange year. I learned a lot— this was very good for me! Thank you!

  2. Love your layout and I already ordered the fat quarter bundle. I can’t wait for April to come. You always come through for us with your beautiful designs. Thank you.

  3. I love it! I used your same fabrics so hopefully you can post the amount of blues you used too so I can place an order. I’m getting 4 yards of the light so hope that’s enough when you say a “bunch”. LOL! I’ll probably order the FQ Tower for the darks.

  4. I love your setting! I am using some of your blues along with some turquoise and am tempted to use your setting, it is really wonderful. Since I am behind in making blocks, I can still make some with dark backgrounds.

  5. Anxiously awaiting your final instruction for your setting. I used your fabrics and can’t wait to finish. Thank you.
